Removing tile transfers.

Is there an easy way of completely removing vinyl transfers from ceramic kitchen tiles?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi there,
With just a scraper it is hard work but if you boil the kettle against them it is so much easier. Hope it works for you

Thanks Fanann

I was becoming resigned to many hours of scraping but found by trial and error that painting the tiles with nail varnish remover (don't tell the wife) and leaving them for a few minutes the vinyl softens and is much easier to remove. However I am sure there are Health and Safety aspects associated with this method!
